So, I’m part of a Career Accountability Group. Basically, it’s a group of actors that come together monthly to hold themselves and each other accountable to doing the business and career work that is easy to ignore, neglect, or otherwise put off. Each member has a partner in the group, and partners check in with each other weekly. The group meets monthly to discuss our accomplishments for the previous month, share goals for the upcoming month, talk about news, share resources, and ask questions. Honestly, I find it absolutely invaluable.
As a playwright, I’ve struggled with landing production opportunities for my new plays the traditional way. So I taught myself the art of self-producing.
As anyone who dabbles in theatrical effects knows, cheap stage blood is very unforgiving and will stain your skin and clothes if you look at it the wrong way, whereas most commercially available bottles of “washable fabric-safe fake blood” come in tiny bottles that are prohibitively expensive. So, how do we keep the cleaning budget from ballooning out of control? By making it ourselves using my tried and true, super-sexy, fabric-safe, no-stain washable stage blood recipe, that’s how!
Well, we’ve survived another Hollywood Fringe. I mean, barely. But we survived. This year’s festival was one of the most stressful I’ve ever experienced as a venue manager. However, as an actor, a producer, a designer, and a playwright, it was a complete success!

I’m thrilled to be a part of this year’s festival not only as a designer, playwright, and venue manager, but also as a performer! That’s right, ya boy’s performing in a show this year, and I’m super stoked for you to come and see it!
Last week, I had the pleasure of being a guest on James Elden’s Playwright’s Spotlight, a theatre podcast about playwriting. His show usually runs a solid hour to ninety minutes, and it’s a “writers on writing” podcast. However, we did a full two hours!
“What the hell am I doing here? I don’t belong here. I don’t belong here.”
It’s been a bit since I’ve talked about career stuff on here. I’ve been hard at work submitting, connecting with casting folks, and developing my own material.
I didn’t do a new year’s post this year. Or late last year.
In the past, I’ve done long-winded year-end wrap-ups and retrospectives where I assess the prior 365.25 days and declare my intention to make the next 365.25 days different.
